Mike 'Sully' Sullivan of Thrive New Media has produced a very unique product that teaches young surfers and their parents exactly what surf companies are looking for and expect when sponsoring surfers. Sullivan goes to surf industry leaders, surf team managers, top surfboard makers and more and provides video interviews of what they seek when awarding surfing sponsorships.
Listen to what Jeff 'Doc' Lausch, of Surf Prescriptions Surfboards has to say about surf sponsorship. "You have to have something to offer. There's a lot of good guys out there, there's a lot of good surfers. Everybody rips and everybody thinks they need to be sponsored"
Longtime surfboard maker Gary Linden talks about some potential sponsored surfers, "They think it's a gift and it's not a business relationship, and because they surf well they're somehow entitled to free boards and it just doesn't work that way".
So what does it take to secure a surfing sponsorship? What are sponsors looking for in a surfer?
Thrive New Media is very proud to announce the release of the "Sponsor Me Surfing" project. This is an information package that includes 3 DVDs and a 50 page Ebook on the secrets to finding surf sponsors. It will give young surfers an 'edge' over their competition in acquiring sponsorships.
Sullivan interviews surf team managers from surf industry giants Rip Curl, Hurley and Dakine. He talks with legendary surfboard makers Gary Linden (Linden Surfboards, Jeff 'Doc' Lausch (Surf Prescriptions Surfboards) and Steve Boysen (SB Surfboards). He also talks with a local surf shop team manager, (Huntington Surf & Sport), a high school surf coach, (Carlsbad High, Carlsbad, CA), the national director of the NSSA, (National Scholastic Surfing Association) and others.
Hear it from the mouths of these industry leaders as they talk about everything from the local surf shops to surfing competitions, to surf photos and videos, personality, attitude and much, much more.
